Obviously we are not sure how things are going to pan out in 2021 but we have booked the venues for our World Textile Days next year in the hope that all will go ahead. Some of our usual dates have changed so get your favourite into your diary. All the details are listed below

We are hoping that some of our other regular shows will go ahead too. More will be added as things get clearer. Keep an eye on changes below.

23 Apr 2021 to 25 Apr 2021: Wonderwool
Show
Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells, Mid Wales
Fri 23 Apr 2021 to Sun 25 Apr 2021, 10 - 4.30

   Well Wonderwool has gone virtual again this year  - its sad but it does mean that you can join it from anywhere in the country or indeed anywhere in the world. 

We are "official exhibitors" and will be posting a short 5 minute film about Textile Traders on Friday 23rd followed by assorted posts throughout the weekend with special offers.

Join the Virtual Wonderwool on Facebook

 

 

  Throughout the weekend The Welsh Guilds of Weavers, Spinners and Dyers have organised a series of zoom talks, tours and short workshops. All of the presenters have given their time free of charge and the participants are invited to make a donation to the two charities being supported.

I shall be giving a talk at 4.45 on Saturday 24th on the very special role that batik plays in the important life events - from Cradle to Grave. You can register for a ticket here
